Read full description of the books Safely Buried:It was ten at night. I had just come off I-65, and my high beams lit her up from behind. She was walking along the road between dark, endless cornfields, and her right leg was in a cast. She wore denim shorts and a yellow tank top that didn’t quite reach the shorts. Without crutches, she moved as fast as she could on the gravelly shoulder. She would take a long step with her good leg, stiffly swing the cast forward the same distance, and immediately start the next step. Tilting jerkily, she looked as if she would fall with every stride. I crossed the centerline to give her more room to fall. Just as I was about to pass her, she glanced over her shoulder and stuck out a thumb.
When Phil Larrison picks up a hitchhiker, he gets more than he bargained for.
Read information about the authorI was born and raised in Allentown, Pennsylvania, but I have lived in southern Indiana most of my life. For many years I was editor and publisher of The Brownstown Banner, a semiweekly paper in the south-central part of the state. During that time I wrote all sorts of things for the paper, from obituaries to editorials, from town-meeting news to high-school sports, from features about readers’ favorite recipes to captions for photos of giant pumpkins.
I received degrees in English from the University of Notre Dame and the University of Virginia, and I spent a year at the University of London on a Fulbright fellowship. My short stories have appeared in various literary magazines, among them Sou’wester, The Florida Review, Four Quarters, and Prairie Schooner. My mystery novel, "Safely Buried," won the 2012 Best Books of Indiana Contest sponsored by the Indiana State Library in Indianapolis. The cover of the book features a pastel painting by my wife, Maureen. Our children, Jesse and Abigail, live in New York.
